Joe Biden has been caught in the crosshairs of another scandal as the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has found staggering evidence that he, along with his family, received millions of dollars from a Chinese energy company after he left the office of the vice presidency.
On Thursday, the committee released a memo digging into the details of their investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings, following a subpoena that was issued by the chairman, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., that demanded financial records in relation to their probe.
Per their report:
“Pursuant to a subpoena, the Committee recently obtained financial records related to Mr. John Robinson Walker, a Biden family associate, and his company Robinson Walker, LLC. Prior to issuing the subpoena, the Committee received information that Mr. Walker used his company to transfer money to Biden family members. The bank records proved that information correct.
Ranking Member Jamie Raskin mischaracterized the substance of the bank records by referencing payments related to Mr. Walker’s miscellaneous purchases such as ‘Papa John’s’ and ‘coffee at Starbucks[.]’ Rep. Raskin omitted material facts that Robinson Walker, LLC received a $3 million wire from a Chinese company in March 2017—less than two months after Vice President Joe Biden left public office—and that Mr. Walker then transferred over a million dollars to various bank accounts associated with the Bidens in the following months.”
Their review established that Mr. Walker had formed Robinson Walker, LLC, in Delaware in 2008 and that between 2015 to 2017, “Biden family members and their companies received over $1.3 million in payments from Rob Walker related accounts.”
Those who received money included Hunter Biden, Hallie Biden, and James Brian Biden Sr.
Most disturbingly, their report stated, “On March 1, 2017—less than two months after Vice President Joe Biden left public office— State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese company, wired $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC. At the time of the wire, Rob Walker’s business account had a balance of approximately $159,000.”
The committee’s investigation also found that after this transfer, there was evidence that Robinson Walker, LLC supposedly “wired $1,065,000 to a company associated with James Gilliar,” who was a business partner to Hunter Biden and “was involved in foreign transactions with the Biden family[.]”
A fourth and unidentified “Biden” apparently received money incrementally, along with James, Hunter, and Hallie. “We are continuing to investigate the identity of this account,” the Oversight Committee stated on Twitter.
“Form the bank records, it appears that the Biden family received approximately one-third of the money obtained from the China wire,” they stated.
In their memo, members of the committee noted that they were “concerned about the national security implications of a President’s or Vice President’s immediate family members receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals or companies without any oversight.”
They are now asking for meaningful reforms to “government ethics and disclosure laws that will provide necessary transparency into a President’s or Vice President’s immediate family members’ income, assets, and financial relationships with companies.”
